Rumble / Social ExperimentsWhat would you do if you saw a small child on the street, homeless and begging for help? Would you stop on the spot to offer them aid or would you walk away, ignoring them? YouTuber RobbyTV decided to throw a social experiment in order to find out just that.

Robby hired a child actress called Laila to pose as a helpless, homeless child on the busy streets of a big metropolis. Laila was dressed in a dirty garb and sat on the freezing cement on the street, with a huge sign that reads "Homeless and hungry. Please help”. What Robby’s camera captured is unsettling at best.

Dozens of strangers passed the “helpless” child without even shooting her a look, but as time passed, people started to take notice of the child. Some would stop to offer her some change from their pockets; one woman even stopped to ask her if she is OK and if she needs help, but in the end, all she had to offer the beggar was “It will be okay”.

Finally, one woman decided to stop and actually offer help to Laila, bringing some food and a $20 bill. The woman’s looks made Robby feel uncomfortable behind the camera, so he ran to their side, asking her if she is, in fact homeless.

The woman gave her last money to a child on the street and even after she learned that the girl is taken care for, she would not accept her gift back.

Hopefully this video will make you think things through next time you see a person in need. There is so much you can do to help!

    This is a staged experiment to see if anyone cares. THIS is why no one stops or "cares", since they expect situations like these to be fake. Had I seen this girl, I would have immediately looked around for a camera or a parent keeping watch. You can't trust anyone, especially people looking for handouts.

    Goodness sakes! I so hope that homeless lady - the only one who really offered help - gets some true help herself. Her blessed heart was so pure, being one of the homeless, and spending what little resource she obviously had collected, and sat down to 'motherly' share with the child. Such honest display of goodness from One who is disparagingly in the thick of Life's battle herself, let's hope Providence repays her kindness. Emotionally overwhelming to watch.
